Interesting! I like that it was her issues, and not his, that prevented them from talking more (unlike in the game).  It fits so well within your narrative.  Ayren's face in the 6th panel is so adorably open, and the 7th is sweet as all get-out.

Thanks! Yes, Ayren has had issues with past boyfriends and with all that's happening, losing her only friend (ok, she's still has Joker and Chakwas, but that's not the same) is the last thing she needs. So she does what she can: avoid him. And yes, that's different from the game, in which Garrus is the one who prefers to wait...
Thanks!! I also like her face there a lot, I wanted to show her more relaxed around Garrus, more like... everything seems to be in place, or starting to be in place.
Panel 7th was my poor attempt to avoid drawing another face and trying to show that Garrus does like human hair... or at least, Ayren's ;) The text is just to distract the reader from both facts XD

*Mission.  :facepalm: I r gud speller. XP


BTW, the way you draw her hair provides a smooth transition from light (or shiny hair) to dark.  Especially in the last panel, with the closeup, that really makes Ayren's hair look smooth and silky.  She neither has clumpy locks of hair, nor too many lines.

Oh, no-no, I'm not good at spelling, I think the spelling corrector is on...

That's the magic of hair brushes ;)

WOO! I'm on fire today! Two comments! Alright here goes this one!

Panel three wins. My favorite part of panel three (don't laugh) is her leg! The leg she's hugging close to her makes me happy! I love the little curl where her calf is pressed up against her thigh, and how her arms are so naturally draped around it :3 Well done!

I also really enjoy panel four and panel six. Her expression in panel four made me giggle. Her eyes and eyebrows are my favorite part of her expression :3 very alive and sassy!

Panel six is just cute, I really enjoy how her cheek smooshes up against her hand and how her hair falls around her face.

Great job honeybun!

Thanks! I thought that Shepard hugging her leg served as a cute way of "shielding" herself for what could happen in their conversation. It's not that she doesn't trust him, it's that she's had bad experiences with her previous boyfriends and she's bracing for the worst. I'm glad I managed the effect of pressure and her arms hugs her leg naturally :dance:

Thanks! I confess I remodeled a lot her expression in panel 4 from the original lines when I shade it. Her mouth was completely off! I like the final result better. And panel 6! I wanted to make her look cute and adorable, maybe her eyes are a little too large, but I think it helps the effect.

Thank youuuu!

It is a great 'shield'! Whenever I'm upset I usually hug my legs close to me, so I can relate xD

You've done wonderfully on all the expression. Your hard work shows and it pays off :)

Lol I didn't use any camera's, I just remeber Garrus mentioning Shepards tattoo after he rejoined the crew.
